I think I fancy a maxi dress

I've never really liked them (for me), but think I'd like one now (probably means they're very out of fashion!).

Any links to nice ones? I feel like something bright, but I'm used to dressing in dull colours so might chicken out.

I'm 5'6", size 10-12, breastfeeding boobs of 32E. I'm 37.

Thanks

Pepperberry have a couple of nice ones.

Was quite surprised to see a couple of nice jersey ones in Wallis as don't usually like their stuff at all ... And great plains had some not long ago ...

Thanks. None of those really leap out at me. Perhaps they're not my thing after all. I was liking the idea of something floaty and loose, and leg covering.

I wear them all the time. Have about 20 smile very easy to dress up or down. I wear my strapless ones with heels when feeling glam then dress them down with a denim jacket or open white shirt and flats. I love them. The Next ones in the summer collection are lovely this year. I have 8 from the collection and I feel great in them and get lots if compliments. George at asda also got some great ones, layering them etc is the key. A denim waistcoat also looks good over the top them or a knotted white shirt.

Ver have loads as well

Thanks for all the links, fuzzy. I don't like any of them! I don't like those big kind of blurry prints. And Baby DS would be pulling down that bandeau! I definitely need straps!

I wonder if I'm imagining something that doesn't exist. Certainly can't describe what I want!

Fat Face have some nice ones (sorry I don't know how to do links).

I'm coveting this one from New Look atm. Saw it instore and it feels soft and cool and not cheapo.

Thanks. So many links...and I'm still not satisfied. So far I think I prefer the new look one, linked to by threepiecesuite. But it's not what I was envisaging.

I have a gorgeous maxi but I cant remember where I got it from.

Judyandherdreamofhorses Thu 27-Jun-13 22:19:01

I like this one.

Christie

About £100 cheaper would be good!

And it's a bit too formal. I was thinking school fete, friend's BBQ, casual evening meal type thing.

Sorry can't link as on phone but I got a lovely jersey one from amazon - about £10 and loads if different colours. Quality is surprisingly good and received lots of compliments

I got this one in a shop today. It's really comfortable and flattering.
